Great pics everyone! Gary, my guess for the year would be 1967, based mostly on the tires. Am I close? Brian

Thanks for the guess Brian... I think your close... and those tires sure do tell you something about an earlier era... other than the early seventies like the Ivan Little Pic Rick just posted here.

Did you ever see Ivan and Jeno run at Ransomeville NY?

Never been to Ransomville but I saw Lloyd Holt & "The Canadian Blast" run at Weedsport a few times. Holt's cars were always neat and clean.

Brian, my quess was around 1967 - 1969, I have an old Gater yearbook from 1968 but cant lay my hands on it.The pics I posted are 1975 and I have another old Holt picture somewhere that was his next coupe and it
was super nice.Although I am in Ontario my seeing Holt and The Blast was
also at Weedsport as it was closer for us then then going to western Ontario.I have to dig these pics out as these were definitely the glory
days.

Rick Now that is a car I want to do along with Mike Zajak #8 Cool looking Modified and I'm guessing an early show car as well. I would love to see some chassis pics of those Show Cars.

Great find Rick! Thanks Bud! :D

I will do a Card Board Body for this one being as I don't have a chevy body like this... I only have a 39 Chevy.

Hey No Problem Gary...Glad to Help... I wish the Jeno Car was better but oh well.... Since you know I am a huge Jimmy Begolo Fan/Nut lol...

P.S: Soon I will have another 250+ Dirt Trackin Magazines ranging from 1983/84-1999...YES I said 250+.

I think other than the tracks themselves... I think I will have the biggest collection of them that I know of :eh:

Can't wait to see whats in those magazines...

As I have already have 38 of them ranging from 1983/84-93'
